Workshop Opportunity: Cultural Safety and Humility

This year’s hybrid BC Physiotherapy Conference runs from April 30–May 2 at the Westin Bayshore. CPTBC is sponsoring a four-hour interactive workshop on May 1 on cultural safety and humility.

Date:  May 1, 2022 (following the PABC forum)
Location:  Oak Room, Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver, BC
Time:  9:00 am to 1:00 pm

The workshop will explore these questions related to Anti-Indigenous Racism: What is it? How do you notice it in your work and personal lives? What does it mean to work towards reconciling relationships?

Led by two facilitators, participants will:

  • identify and unpack key terms
  • discuss and develop your relationship with land acknowledgments
  • explore the TRC Calls to Action in Health & Culturally-Safe Practice
  • discover Anti-Racist practices to weave into your personal & professional lives
  • take a heart-centred journey through Canada’s history with Indigenous Peoples

You will experience Indigenous teachings that will support you to connect your mind with your heart to enliven change in your personal life and within your professional communities.
